Configure Postfix to stop it blocking email sent from a certain domain

Hi all,

Just got a new server which runs postfix and is admined through webmin and I'm new to postfix.

When sending mail to this new server to the address leon@pitch-invasion.com from leon@aciddrop.com using the SMTP server aciddrop.com ( mail doesn't get through. If I use my ISP's smtp server, or gmail it does get through.

Therefore, my pitch-invasion.com domain is somehow blocking mail sent from the aciddrop.com SMTP. Nothing about this shows up in the logs.

How, therefore, can I configure the Postfix server on pitch-invasion.com to stop blocking this email?

Many thanks,

Leon Chevalier

Presumably you control both domains? If you do, can you check the maillogs on aciddrop.com to see any related error messages?

If it is a new setup, it may just be a little delay in DNS updates as some DNS servers are slow to pick up changes when new domains are added.

Doh! Slap head time. I had a pitch-invasion.com domain set-up on the aciddrop.com server too (which was just a left-over). So it was delivering the mail internally.

This was realised through looking at the logs so I'll give you the points alchemist.
